Paulette Goddard’s jewelry collection steadily grew through her relationships with composer George Gershwin and actor/director Charlie Chaplin. Although she sported many notable gems, one of her most unique was an emerald-and-diamond cuff and earrings set.

Both the cuff and the earrings feature flower-shaped diamonds with green jellybean-shaped emeralds. Crafted by Trabert & Hoeffer-Mauboussin, this set includes 18k of diamonds. Goddard wore these gems in the 1939 film The Women.
